Totally in for speaker and amp recommendations.

Eyeballing Focal P165V and then some amp. But honestly, no clue about audio. I've only been listening to my non-approved MT.net muffler for the past few years.

so any focal components are great. Rockford fosgate is awesome for amps! Rockford fosgate also has amp install kits. don't trust cheap amp kits. also our cars have low amp output alternators so I would highly recommend going over your factory grounds and making sure they are secure and have perfect connection.

I run a Sony head unit with 5V pre outs, Lanzar 8" door speakers, 2 days worth of sound deadening/door stiffening with wood, anti-rallting mods to doors, Rockford 600W amp, 12" low profile Rockford sub in a sealed box. All the sound deadening on all the things and then some, and foam too. And more foam.

My C63's 450W factory Harmon Kardon stereo sounds better (clearer, better imaging, more accurate) but the miata is a lot louder, sharper (harsher?) highs, much more low end bass extension. But I've yet to hear any car that sounds better than the C63, regarding voice and imaging.

agree with this.

Have you heard their new setups with the two subs in the front driver/pass foot well?

I have not, but that sounds promisingly awesome.

I'd love to have those two subs, the rear shelf sub in mine rattles. I need to solve that.

My rear shelf doesn't rattle, but damn I bet those front subs would be sweet! Man, that's the perfect location for them too. Is that S class only, or E and C too?

I think it's in the new c-class. I had one for a loaner and noticed the sound system was better.

everything is closer to ear level, the door woofers are near the handle.


its called FrontBass.

Some more progress was made today! I got the speaker rings from eBay since I don't have a router and didn't feel like using my little jigsaw to cut the rings out. Anyways here's some pictures of the rings mounted with small wooden dowels and hot glue:

i feel like the 8" is going to be pointless.

I dunno, I think it would help bring out the punchyness/drums perhaps? Just a guess.

I'm only spending about 30 minutes a day on this thing but here's the face with the fabric glassed wrapped and glassed!

Too bad it wouldn't fit my NB. I would pay for one.
